Welcome to the Wildcat’s
Home Page - Rockford, Illinois' Youth Cross Country Team



The Wildcats is a Youth Cross Country Team that started running in 1997. The program is designed to let kids have fun while learning about running. The ages of our runners range from 5-18. The program is open to all who might be interested in running. We compete in a series of cross-country meets during the fall, beginning in early October. The Wildcats host a meet on October 31, 2015, which is open to all youth runners. The Wildcats are a part of the Rockford Road Runners, a Road Runners Club of America organization member club. Rockford Wildcats are also affiliated with AAU and USA Track and Field.
